FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a Flint police officer responding to a call about a house fire was among two people injured in a three-vehicle crash.

Police say the officer’s SUV collided with the vehicles Wednesday morning, injuring the officer and a 48-year-old woman driving one of the other vehicles.

Police say the officer was hospitalized in good condition and the woman was released after being treated.

The Flint Journal reports a 911 call indicated that someone might be trapped by the fire, but the fire department later said that no one was trapped. Police say the officer was heading to the scene to assist.
